Risk management is a critical phenomenon for which proactive approach must be taken for an organization to succeed. Organizations have been emphasizing on process safety to minimize the risk’s posed by hazardous industries. Process hazard analysis (PHA) is considered as a critical tool in the execution of a successful risk management system. Hazard and operability (HAZOP) studies are identified as being the qualitative risk assessment methodology of choice in the process industries. Additionally, emphasis is on this aspect of process hazard analysis.
